Linda and I are finally getting back to normal. Neither of us has felt good this week and we're blaming it on Florida, I won't go into details.
I installed a new pump in the hot tub and it seems to be working, surprise-surprise. The transmission on the power wagon is next, then the bearings on the RV. It never seems to end. I walked outside this morning to find out what the dog was barking at (our neighbor, who she's know since she was a pup) and I heard a loud buzzing. Searching out the source of the noise I found our front bushes (fatsia japonica) covered with bees, wasps, flies and a 'butterfly-moth'. I haven't ID'ed it yet but it looks like a confused moth that's out during the day. You've got to love Georgia, it's the middle of December, 75 degrees out and we have flowers blooming. Remind me what I just said when I'm complaining about the weather in Febu-awful.
I have two photos today, both from the buzzing bush. The first is a green bottle fly and the second is a green kleptoparasite cuckoo wasp. Both of these ID's are tentative. If someone knows different let me know. I'll have more photos from the buzzing bush next week.
